Attitude is a weekly series looking at the issues and interests of people living with a disability. This episode features the Special Olympics Unity Cup at the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa. The team is made up of intellectually disabled players from around the world, and celebrities such as South African president Jacob Zuma, Special Olympics boss Tim Shriver (of the Kennedy family), and Chinese movie star Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). Mark Liggins is the Kiwi representative on the team, and he travels to the cup with former All Whites captain Steve Sumner.

Our athletes represent a challenge to intolerance, they represent a challenge to prejudice, to fear, to human misunderstanding. They are the world’s and history’s most deeply wounded victims of prejudice.
– Dr Tim Shriver, Special Olympics Chairman/CEO
